    I am looking to make some quick income so that I can move onto new ventures. I haven't been as involved in the seo/im game the last year or so as I thought I had a new career path in life. Sadly the untimely demise of online poker in the U.S.(especially Fulltilt) has caused me to reevaluate my plans after having lost over $10,000. Now for some that is not a lot of money, but for me that was a killer loss to myself.

    I am currently a student at a large university(40k+) in the midwest, and I am also assistant supervisor for our University paper's flyering/advertising team. Obviously, I barely make anything working for the university. However, I realized the potential I had at my fingertips.

    Last month, I printed my own flyers and used some offers from cpajuice, and made a little over $700 in a week from 250 flyers. Of course, I thought I did great until cpajuice decided to shave off over half my earnings.

    That is why I want to JV with 2-3 people. I want to use your CPA link and offer from a well-known, and respected CPA company. I can't get accepted by maxbounty or clickbank or some of the better ones because I don't own any sites anymore.

    So my basic plan is this:
    You pick an offer that would be successful in a college environment with your cpa. It would be nice if you had a landing page, but it's really up to you.
    You can design the flyer or I can if you want.
    I print out the flyers and stick them in with our local ads, and let my teams spread them like normal. They will be able to hand them out, and post on campus property without anyone thinking anything about it. People will have a higher likelihood to trust it as well, since it is coming from us.

    Also, I can use my paper's printers to make the flyers myself and no one should really question it. However, an order does have to be put in which is why I need an upfront investment. We are talking about .04c a page for b/w, and .10-.30 for different amounts of color or images.

    I think this would be great for anyone in a similar position to myself, looking to make some quick revenue to fund better and bigger ventures.
    What I would want is a small upfront investment of 100-200 dollars.
    This would cover me for printing out the flyers, ink, and getting my own team to do the work for us.
    Then we would share profits from the advertising campaign, 60/40. 40% for me.
    Of course I would only do this with more trustworthy members of the forum. Also, I am up for some negotiation with the upfront investment, and profit sharing.
    I would just want you to have a good CPA company, and use a specific offer for our flyering job so we know how much we make.
    I will also take pictures of the flyers, and document us putting them out.

    My only requirements are that you be in the U.S., be comfortable paying me my part in advance, are fine with not using paypal, have a good CPA company, and are willing to show me proof of the amount earned.

    I realize this is a very weird JV, but I think it will give a few people including myself a chance to make a nice amount of money in a couple weeks. I should also mention this is time sensitive, as the last flyering jobs will be this Friday, Saturday, and next Tuesday.
    I'm only looking for 3, maybe for people max as I don't want to flood the community around here. I want to be able to do the same thing by myself in a few weeks hopefully when my new site is up, and new freshmen are rolling into campus.

    If this seems like something you might be interested in please PM me. I don't have a skype due to having a crappy computer with no video. However, I'd be happy to talk on gchat if you give me your email.
    Thanks!

    I've pmed everyone back who sent me a message. So far only 1 person is in 100%.
    So I'm looking to get 2-3 more people before it's too late.
    Those that sent me a message should try and contact me on gchat, and others if still interested should send me a PM with a gmail, or other method of contact.
    Sorry, don't have skype(yeah I suck).

    My campus has a very high amount of student stay-overs during the summer. Many people live here all 12 months, and during the summer foot traffic in certain areas is still in the 10's of thousands. Also, new students come for orientation and tours during the summer with friends/family effectively doubling the amount of people. Then of course there are athletes, grad students such as myself, and staff who stay around.
    Also, my campus effectively has a 200,000 population in a 20 mile radius for the county.

    That is why running it during the summer is still a good idea, and I was hoping that people would want to do this once before summer ends.
    We only have 3-4 more flyering dates before we are done for summer, and then we don't do anymore until the first week of classes in mid-august.
    Doing this now, would prove my JV, and hopefully interest more people in doing more JV's in the fall when new freshmen show up.

    If you are interested let me know.

    @l0goz, I wouldn't have a problem working with you. I just mostly wanted to avoid doing anything more overseas international. If you are still interested, shoot me a pm.

    since when Clickbank is a CPA company? and since when you need to get yourself accepted with them?

    anyways, best of luck with your JV, it seems to be promising ;)

    Yeah, I sometimes think I really am an idiot. I'll just put that one on me being out of the game a while.
    :D
    Thanks for the encouragement though!

    Why cant you accept paypal and how in earth you cant afford a few hundred bucks to do this yourself? It just doesn't add up, especially when you say that you made $700 in one week. 40% Shaving would still leave you a hefty $420 which is more than enough than what you are looking for. I don't know, it doesn't make any sense to me.

    I don't have paypal. I was actually just talking about this in another thread. Long story short, my ebay and paypal were banned couple years ago. Got scammed by a team of people buying from my store for over $2000. I had a 98% positive feedback and more than 1000 happy customers, yet ebay and paypal decided I was the bad guy. So that is why I can't do paypal.

    To be completely honest, I am also quite broke at the moment. However, the real reason for the JV( if you would have read carefully) is to use other members more reputable cpa companies.

    Hope I've made you feel better, since I'm sure you have no intention of actually JVing with me.

    Hey pal,

    You have a great deal going here. I am just going to point out a few things. A Joint venture works when we both come together with something to offer. We both put our best foot forward.

    You saying that you are dead broke, can't even afford flier money raises red flags. It seems like you are looking for quick dollars because bills, etc are due.

    Not wanting to be paid by PayPal, yeah they suck but given the nature of what you are proposing. It just seems odd.

    You have a few people under your belt, work with them for the time being. Then when all's successful, and both parties are willing to review it then I think you'll have a larger audience.

    Success to you pal!

    Well I'm still sorry you feel that way man, hopefully we can work together in the future. Still I don't think I'd ever accept doing a 50/50 venture, where I pay for all the materials and do all the work. I understand where you were coming from, but your proposition just doesn't make good business sense since this is my JV. I'm sharing my community which I feel is largely untapped to those who want it.

    All I'm asking for is a small investment, and to use other members reputable cpas. It seems like so many people on this forum now are overly paranoid and skeptical which sucks for many people looking to do honest work. I tried to be honest, explaining that I am broke and want to make money. However, it seems that makes some of you even less willing to trust me.

    Also, it truly suck sucks in my opinion that everyone gives paypal this gold star for greatness. I can't and wouldn't ever trust them again with money for any business I ever do. Hopefully, in the future more people move to serve.com which I hope destroys paypal, and becomes the preferred method for online money transferring and purchases.

    Anyways to those who don't have a problem putting money upfront, and have the willingness to take a good risk I am still looking for 1-2 people.

    I have no ill will and I thank you for updating your thread's OP. It helps give people more a sense where to go.

    You are asking people for MoneyPak's and you we both discussed how those are looked upon.

    I definitely will be working with you. I am constantly looking to expand my fliers. Its extremely lucrative.

    I want to see you succeed and others too!

    Thanks, I appreciate the support. I definitely enjoyed our talk, and look forward to working with you.

    I know the stigma around moneypaks and greendot in general is not very good, but for me they have been great.
    Nothing I can really do about it though, can't and won't use paypal, and Western union is a ripoff. Other money transferring methods seem shadier, and are definitely slower.
    Except for Serve.com, but that still needs to gain traction and popularity.
    Either way, I feel that an upfront investment insures, my needs are covered, and no matter what method it still needs to be paid. I'm just trying to protect myself and avoid a chargeback scam at the same time.
    Hate doing free work.

    Anyways, just looking for people who want to make money and don't mind taking a risk. Obviously this is flyering, and there are no guarantees. Still I think in a targeted market, with the trustworthiness of my university employed team lending to the credibility of the offer, people can expect a large return on their investment.

    $100-200 invested in my method, could easily net someone $1000+ of revenue. Anyways, I am willing to cut my share and do a 70/30 split with people, so that I can gain more reputation. Hopefully, I can still get 1-2 more interested people. I really would love to get more rep and become more trustworthy.

    If anyone else is still interested though please pm me. Would like to do someone's flyers for Friday/saturday, and then get the rest done Tuesday, and Thursday/Friday next week.

    Seems I can't edit my op any longer so I thought I'd add some of the information a few people wanted to see originally.

    My conversion rate were nothing amazing, but I think the different offers I used were what let me succeed.
    I had 2 different offers one for a star bucks gift card paying 1.80, and a student grant paying 33.
    My grant one only had a 6% conversion rate, while my star bucks one had over 14%.

    Also, what some people seem to miss out is I didn't just do regular flyers, I also included about 50 flyers with 10 tear-able pieces at the bottom.
    These were posted in high-traffic areas, effectively getting 10 people per flyer.

    I've also changed the requirements for the investment and profit share so more people can feel comfortable trusting me, and hopefully I can gain positive reputation on the forum.
    So from now on I am willing to do this for a $75 up front investment, and a 70/30 profit share(30% for me).
    Only one person is in 100%, so I am still looking for 2-3 more people to join.
    The $75 will get you 500 black and white flyers, as well as 100 tear-able flyers. If you want a bit of color, such as for a attention grabbing image then we can work something out.

    And for those worrying about competition or traffic, don't worry. There is effectively a 200,000 population in the county and cities surrounding my campus all within a 15 mile radius. Also, include visitors, tourists, families coming for orientations during the summer, and international students. Obviously, there is more than enough traffic for several of us to profit, while using my university employed team to lend credibility to the offers.
    These are all students who love nothing else more than free stuff. Trust me, when Chipotle has free burrito day, the line is usually 4 blocks long.

    Anyone who showed interest before, but was hesitant can still join under the new terms, and anyone else can feel free to contact me.

    Thanks everyone!


    **Also, if you make anything less than 100% of your total investment in profit(you invest $75 and make less than $150 from your 70% share) , the rest will be paid back from me.**

    Well Mugshots, I'm glad you are willing to be the "guinea pig" and prove myself here. Looking forward to a profitable relationship.

    If anyone else is interested I can probably do one more person for the last 2 flyering dates I have coming up this week on Tuesday and Thursday. Must be comfortable with at least a $75 upfront investment, and yes Moneypak is preferred payment at the moment. If you think you are interested let me know.
